The village of Rothley is within easy reach of the towns of Loughborough and Leicester, yet it feels as if it’s worlds apart. Sat in the old part of the village The Woodmans Stroke, fondly known by the locals as “The Woodies”, fits the pastoral scene beau

Built in 1714 the thatched property is immaculate and looks at its best during the spring and summer months when it is draped with colourful hanging baskets and overflowing window boxes. Wandering inside, visitors will find a traditional interior of wooden beams and tiled floors. There is also a large amount of rugby, cricket and golf memorabilia – with the owners being keen supporters of the Leicester Tigers and sport in general.

The Woodies has been run by the Warner family for over 2 decades, with sons Simon, Jonathan and dad Peter – the ex-rugby player looking after the bar, leaving daughter Ann-Marie and mum Jilly-May taking care of the food. The pub also boasts 3 petanque teams and runs regular buses to “Fortress Welford Road” – Home of the Leicester Tigers.

Each weekday lunchtime there is a fine bar menu served, with offerings ranging from freshly cut sandwiches to heartier dishes – including homemade steak and kidney pie. In warm weather meals can be taken outside to the large landscaped garden. There's no food served in evenings or weekends – when the pub becomes perhaps even more popular for its liquid refreshment and lively conversation.
